We all have different obligations in life. Our jobs, friends, family, religion, or even an organization we’re a part of require things from us. Life can get hectic at times and we often overlook our own well-being.
Lucky for all of us we have Google. Type in ‘self-care’ and I’m pretty sure Google will tell you the many ways to do this. Eat healthy, go to the gym, socialize, etc. For me I’ve realized that my discovery of the 10 step Korean skincare routine is a process in itself to self-care. If you haven’t looked it up I suggest watching Youtube for it. At first I was overwhelmed by the process and wasn’t at all interested in any of it other than sheet masks. I picked some up at Target and instantly fell in love with the soothing and calming feeling it had on my face. I was addicted and after several Youtube channels later, I bought some highly recommended products.
I’m not a heavy makeup wearer. On the daily I just wear powder and blush so I don’t really feel the need to double cleanse. For convenience I actually use makeup wipes by Simple. They work great and it cleans my makeup right off. I’ve also tried micellar water, which also does a good job in getting rid of makeup.
Then at least once a week at night I’ll use an exfoliator if I feel whiteheads building up on my nose. If I don’t exfoliate with the Neogen pad, I go straight to my toner pad by Cosrx called one step moisture up pad.
After toner, I use a green tea serum by Innisfree and love the smell of it.
Then I follow up with a moisturizer. I plan to use the Cosrx moisturizer at night and the Etude house collagen cream during the day.
And voila to perfectly clear skin that’s a good base for makeup application. I’ve found that by doing this whole process, I haven’t broken out. You’d think that this would be such a hassle, but it’s really not. In fact, it actually makes me feel good and pampered thus giving me a boost of confidence. Even my husband notices the difference and is amazed by my results.
